    Is anyone going to their high school grad by bike?

    I was thinking with Grad coming up, and everyone renting cars and such, is anyone going to take their bikes to thier graduation ceremonies,if you are not graduating, did you take your bike to yours?

    No (too old), but I think it's a bold and splendid idea.
    Everybody and their dog is renting a Humvee or a Limo - so this is your chance to be starkly original! I hope you go for it!

    HI Greg, I'm too old as well, but I just threw the idea out there in case anyone is looking for a new idea for Grad, all you have to do is decorate your bike and your all set, it would save a lot of money having to rent a vehicle, and you wouldn't have to worry about returning the rented car in one piece, the only downside to this idea is that the Grads date may not be to happy to hear about his /her plans.

    Well... you could really push the envelope and get a tandem

    I went to graduation practice on my bike last week.

    That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

    I rode my MTN. Bike to my college graduation. I figured it had been my primary transportation while in school, it would be kind of fitting. I felt really funny flying down the hill to the ceremony with my robes flapping in the wind!
    Sunrise saturday,
    I was biking the backroads,
    lost in the moment.
